Dear politician: you may ignore the wisdom of the Founding Fathers and tax the American people to death if they are WILLING to stand for it.

And the democrats and liberals continue to allow every hard working American to pay higher taxes to pay for Obamas spending binges. If you believe Obama when he said that middle class Americans will not pay one more dime in taxes as he tells you he is going after the rich, remember January 1, 2013 when your taxes payable to Obamas spending binge went up.

Always remember, any politician regardless of party, no matter what they say will increase your taxes.

I think many Obama supporters would switch sides if Republicans could ease up a bit.

How important are social issues when you are poor and starving? Do they sit around and worry about contaception, gay marriage, and abortion in Sub-Saharan Africa?

The democrats have done a very good job of falsely ascribing many positions on "social issues" to conservatives. The vast majority simply are not true. The "war on women" tactic of Obama in the last election is a prime example of this. The electorate, being mostly idiots, believed this lie and re-elected the worst president in US history.

Obama has restricted individual rights and civil liberties more than any president in US history. However, he has executed an excellent propaganda program to suggest that he (drones, wire tapping, detention of US citizens, expanding Patriot Act, internet "snitch" programs, domestic spying) is a protector of "rights", particularly those of women!!

Personally I agree with you on your stance. I am socially liberal and fiscally conservative, but why on earth would you vote democrat in a national election if you feel that way?

Social issues are solved at a local, grassroots level, not a national level. What will Obama ever do to further promote gay marriage, to pick one issue? Social issues will always be passed into law because they will gain enough grassroots traction that local politicians will vote them into action, in turn state politicians will vote them into action and in turn national politicians will vote them into action. We need liberal local politicians and conservative national politicians.
